Paripūrṇa (परिपूर्ण) refers to “complete”, and is used to describe Śiva, according the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.15. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] On arrival there, after paying respects to the lord [Śiva] with great excitement we lauded Him with various hymns with palms joined in reverence. The Devas said: [...] We eulogise Thee, the imperishable supreme Brahman, the omnipresent whose features are unmanifest, who can be attained by the Yoga of the Soul and is complete (Paripūrṇa)”.
